The Columbia Daily Tribune recently quoted Professor Richard Reuben in an article regarding claims that City Manager Mike Matthes violated state and federal constitutions during a meeting with Columbia Police Officers’ Association board members. Matthes demanded the board members fire the union’s director, Dale Roberts, after he posted on Facebook suggesting the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death be deemed “Darren Wilson Day.” According to the article, Professor Reuben said Roberts used poor judgment by declaring “Darren Wilson Day” without approval from the board, but Matthes wasn’t justified in making a political statement when demanding Roberts’ resignation.

Professor Reuben was quoted, “It is hard to say which is more offensive. Reasonable minds could differ.”
